Fall Launches Set!
The morning air is crisper in Winnipeg this week, and thus our first reminder about the coming fall is upon us. It’s always sad to see summer come to an end, but we are excited to launch our fall titles in October! Mark your calendars.
October 8 – Madder Carmine by Tyler Enfield launches at Audreys Books in Edmonton.
October 20 – Stan Milosevic’s Wish You Were Here launches at McNally Robinson in Winnipeg.
October 24 – Night Moves, Richard Van Camp’s newest collection of short stories, celebrates a Winnipeg launch at McNally.
November 5 – Leonard G. Flett’s much anticipated memoir From The Barren Lands kicks off in Winnipeg at McNally.
We have decided to shift the launch of Carolyn Gray’s Dean Gunnarson: The Making Of An Escape Artist to be our feature non-fiction title of the Spring 2016 list.
Win a signed copy of Daytripper’s!
Great Plains Publications wants you to get out and discover all that Manitoba has to offer! Take a photo of yourself exploring a path or attraction in Manitoba, then tweet it, facebook it or send it out on instagram with the hashtag #daytrippersGuideMB.
On August 4th, we will draw three winners to receive a signed copy of Bartley Kives’ A Daytripper’s Guide To Manitoba, which has been on the Bestsellers list since it’s release this spring!
Q&Q and Best Books!
Our spring titles have launched! As expected, A Daytrippers’ Guide To Manitoba and On The Air are on top of the Bestsellers lists at McNally Robinson again. Bartley and Garry will be signing books across the city in the lead up to Father’s Day. We’ll be posting the schedule on our Facebook page shortly. Check it out to get a signed copy for dad!
Adam Lindsay Honsigner’s Gracelessland received a glowing review from Quill & Quire. Add “a novel that feels fresh, rich, and heavy with the thrum of life” to your summer reading list!
We are also thrilled to announce that Natasha Deen’s Guardian has been selected as a Best Book. Natasha is working on the follow-up title to this “great hybrid of horror and mystery (think Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Veronica Mars), with oodles of potential for humour and terror.” (Quill & Quire). We can’t wait to find out what happens to Maggie and Serge!
